And then were a baker's dozen.

American Idol revealed its 13 finalists tonight, with five men and five women chosen by the viewers, and the final trio of wild card spots selected by the judges. Did your favorite make it? Find out now:

Season 10 Idol Finalists
  1. Scotty McCreery
  2. Lauren Alaina
  3. Pia Toscano
  4. Karen Rodriguez
  5. Jacob Lusk
  6. Casey Abrams
  7. Haley Reinhart
  8. James Durbin
  9. Thia Megia
  10. Paul McDonald
  11. Naima Adedapo
  12. Ashthon Jones
  13. Stefano Langone

This has to be the most pathetic bunch of finalists ever. Apart from Casey and Scotty, there is no one unique or creative or different. It has basically descended into a Karaoke competition. And the judges are basically cheerleaders that would not dare to criticize anyone who came on stage. I wonder if they are now being forced to just call everyone good? The judges are musicians, can't they hear false pitches in the singers ? Randy used to be able to spot a false note from a mile away, and now he is blind to them ? Bring back Simon Cowell, a bit of an asshole but miles and miles more honest and a better judge of singers than the ones now. Remember they are singer, they just have enough skills to judge their own talents, not other people's, while Simon is a producer and has to understand talent.


Watch out for Scotty MCcreery he can sing a county song just as good as the country stars. I know he can sing great even if it is not a country song. He will shine just wait and see!! :)


Jlo is pimping the much for favortism...
Lauren the rheinstone pagent princess is not idol material, she wants to act like of combination of other people...sarry lauren
not this time Thia is good


Are the rumors true about Charlie Sheen becoming a new judge on American Idol?


I want thia to win! Too bad i cant vote in canada!!


Well, several years ago, Jasmine was in the top 5 and not nearly as talented as the winner. Many of her votes came from the Phillipines where she was beloved. I don't think that is racist as long as the person is talented. Thia has an incredible voice and although not my favorite contestant, I think she has a great chance of winning. I also very much disagree with Pam. I think the contestants of both sexes are very good singers and many are also interesting performers, unlike last year where it seemed more like a high school talent show (except for the top three, who were clearly good at what they do!) As I said before - good job judges!


i think the girls are really doing bad this year. all my votes go out to SCOTTY and especially PAUL MCDONALD , he just rocks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If u vote for ANYTHING b/c of love/dislike for a certain race u r a RACIST! .....The guys r generally better than most of the girls anyways!


Cant wait to see Scotty McCreery choke! Thia has the best chance of winning


"The Filipinos vote will sweep her to victory"- I disagree- the winner is Scotty for sure


American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
